Biography





Jean Demey - Clarinets, Darboukas: Jean started out in the 70's with folk music in Antwerp. Later on he met the jazz musicians of that time. He set up a trio with alto player Mike Zinzen, and formed several bands with Chris Joris, Michel Mast (X-Legged Sally), Luc Mishalle and other respectively. In the same milieu Jean met the great Arabian oud player Hassan Erraji (see allmusic.com on the internet) and the trio Arabesque was born with Pierre Narcisse on percussion and Jean on bass. The interest in multicultural musical cooperation was a fact. Time was ripe then for acoustic fusion, with griot N'Faly Kouyaté from Guinea, Turkish saz player Mahier Tezerdi and his father on bass drum, Italian singer Angelo DeSimoné, Algerian and Morrocan raï singers Cheb Kader and Cheb Mimoun... Most recent years have been an intense search for ethnic combinations.
